I can't say enough positive about Don't Blink. It was the prefect get away. The beach is just a couple minutes walk, or less than a minute bike ride. The beach was clean with beautiful white sand. Our umbrella and chairs were set up and waiting for us every day. The cottage was perfect. Very clean and fully stocked with anything you need....beach bags, coolers, fishing poles, beach toys, bikes, games, books.... to much to list... The provided washer/dryer are a must for a beach vacation. We didn't know until we arrived what a fun biking community this was. We rode the bikes (provided of course) all around to shops and restaurants. Definitely a hidden gem.
We've been visiting Don't Blink for five years now - it's like home away from home. Tidy, charming and secure, we wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else. A great value!
Seagrove Beach and Outlet Shopping were great and the cottage with very clean and very comfortable and so attractively decorated.
First of all, when they say don't bring anything, I had no idea they really meant it! Plenty of paper products, soap, towels, staples, and tons of ambiance. Enjoyed morning coffee on the private screened in porch. Bedrooms and bathroom were all clean and well appointed. The beach was a very quick downhill bike ride, or walk, in both directions. Wrap around deck was inviting and cozy at the same time. The heated outdoor shower was a bonus after a long day at the beach, long bike ride, or run on the lengthy nearby trails. In all, "Don't Blink" more than exceeded our family of four's expectations.

It's called "Don't Blink," but honestly we blinked several times just to see if it was real! As soon as we pulled into the drive of the pretty yellow cottage, we were in love with the seclusion of it. It's tucked just far enough away to make you feel like you're in another world. The walk to the beach, 5-6 minutes, is well worth it. It was so quiet and peaceful and the inside of the place opens up much more than it appears from the outside. The temperature outside was a balmy 90 degrees for the entirety of our stay, but inside it was cool as a cucumber. Our boys loved the bunk bed and our daughter was absolutely thrilled to have her own island oasis. You can really tell the owner is passionate about providing a place of comfort and relaxation for her guests! A guest book sits on the coffee table along side a helpful guidebook with just about everything one could want or need to know about the location and what it has to offer. The house was stocked with flashlights, batteries, coffee, pots, pans, first aid supplies, towels, beach accessories, and so much more. The personal touches of decore like hand-painted pictures were a welcome sight and the hardwood floors were practical and cool to walk on after a long day at the beach. Needless to say, we loved our stay at "Don't Blink," and plan to visit for many more years to come! It's a true home away from home!
